Emperor series tanto

An impressively attractive, strong and functional tanto for the discriminating martial artist. The fittings are all of traditional materials (black iron, brass, same', silk wrappings). Blade is mirror-polished. This naginata-bladed tanto is a really sweet piece - after the 1200's-1400's heyday of the naginata, many old blades were cut down and reused as tanto. This blade recreates one of the type.
